accidental fairytales by Jay Taylor

Currently unavailable for purchase

Frogs, princesses, demons, princes, kings, evil and good, honourable and corrupted, births and deaths, innumerable weddings….often dark, often colourful…the rich heritage of fairytales seeps into the psyche of humanity through our youngsters year after year, generation after generation.

Do you ever question its impact…?

original art by Jay: Taylor

spontaneously applied acrylics and mixed media on cardboard, minimal post production (colour correction) in Photoshop -

- any resemblance to fairytale characters (living or dead) totally accidental!

No trolls or pixies were splatted in the production of this image :-)

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!

    I can see several faces…….. ;o)))

  • Me too! (It’s often quite a shock when I stand back and look at a finished piece – sometimes there are faces and shapes in there that even I don’t spot for months!)
